Confirmation of correctness of our
strategies
The 5th Administration’s pronouncement of 5 concretes to aid the Rebranding;
Repositioning & Renewal of Bokone Bophirima captured the essence of what will
make this province great;
 Bokone Bophirima needed to set itself apart from the rest of South Africa with
what it can offer;
Our unique approach to our provincial challenges will augur well for a better life
for all our citizens irrespective of where they are, in fact, especially where they are
(VTSD)
 People should not feel the need to relocate for a better life – we can help them
create in in their own backyards with the land, livestock and support that will see
development in VTSD including government spend where the people are;
We have an ideal opportunity to Rebrand our province as great; Reposition it as a
people centred administration and Renewal of our commitment for a prosperous,
non racial, non sexist Bokone Bophirima proudly championed by the ANC led
government;
Take heart: our strategies are correct for our province and our people and we
remain resolute to see them succeed.
